Favorite Quote:
"You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart, maybe you'll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. The thought of losing so much control over personal happiness is unbearable. That's the burden. Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us to fly..."
-Dr. Jack Hodgins (Bones)

Smile at. . .
the blue sky.
bright city lights.
the silvery moon.
a shiny red apple.
the glittering stars.
the flower in bloom.
the waves lapping at the shore.
the simple things in life.

Smile when you hear. . .
something funny.
a bird chirping.
a tiny bell ringing.
your friend's voice behind you.
that tune you can't get out of your head.
the beauty of absolute silence.

Smile when you see. . .
that last piece of cake.
an animal acting silly.
that red rose in the middle of a white bouquet.
the ground covered in a white substance.
the small cloud in the middle of that blue sky.
the fire dance around itself.
water droplets gently falling on your face.

Smile at yourself when. . .
you purposely mess up a foreign accent.
you finally finished that long essay.
you look in the mirror.
you realize you are beautiful no matter what anyone else thinks.

Smile at others when. . .
that little girl looks as cute as a button.
you know they need support.
you have great news.
they make the right choice.
they have a smile on their face.

Smile because. . .
you have friends.
you have a family.
you have someone to talk to.
you have someone who cares about you.
you're alive.

Smile even when. . .
you're having a bad day.
to get through the rough times.

Smile. . . because you never know who is looking.
